17 Months Post Surgery

So I came to my blog today to see if it was time for me to post an update again, and low and behold today was exactly 17 months! Well I have to say that things just get better with each passing month. Feeling is slowly improving and I think I could honestly have it totally back by next month. Things have gotten considerably better this past 30 days. My bottom lip is still mildly numb but is sooo much better and only very tiny patchy areas remain impaired. I also got a lot of feeling back in the lower left quadrant of my teeth. They were tingly when I would chew, now they feel much more normal, and less uncomfortable.

I was initially told 18 months to 2 years for full healing. I seem to be coming right up on that date, and may actually be done by then, I suppose only time will tell.

Overall I'm still thrilled I did all of this and very happy with my progress. I'm also now 9 month without a sinus infection, or really any kind of illness. I have been working out very hard, and honestly feel better then I have in years! This surgery was truly a miracle for me.

I will post again next month with my progress. Sorry for the boring update, but it just is what it is.....things are slow, but steady. It's a marathon but one I'm rather enjoying.
